  • Star Citizen Wins Prestigious "Worst MMO Business Model Of 2017" Award

    Actually what they call the game is a deflection from the topic of how well it's managed.
    I think anything critical said about the game, CR, the management, or anything remotely connected to the game in general gets deflected to the point of absurdism.

    And its a shame, some of the guys that used to be just enthousiastic and knowledgeable about the game will now tear any thread to shreds with petty semantics and specific links that strengthen their views while ignoring all others. The most devout know SC better then CR does. Hell, they know CR better then CR does. And with all that, critical thinking went out of the window and proper discussions were made impossible. If I buy SC in the future (and I very well might) it will be despite its zealots, not because of them.

    That is what I call an 'unlikely' game or product that has been magically getting a lot of attention from many new media outlets....hmmmmm dont say?
    I don't really understand what you're trying to say here.  Can you elaborate?
    I have a family member who tried to be an author and as a result he got to know a little bit about the book publishing business back in the 90s.
    He told me this:
    'Big house publishers like to go out and find a few 'unknown authors' and promote them as if they are a golden find'. It doesnt mean they are the best, just good enough to bolster the impression that said publisher is spending a lot of time out in the community finding the best of the best! when it reality its fairly random.

    I think StarDew Valley, No Mans Sky and Long Way Home fit that general feel as well as this game which  has a large number of articles already written about them

    also...the art style has a subtle hint to me that its coming from a big publisher, that could be me projecting but something about the style of the UI makes me think AAA
    Nope. Daedalic Entertainment is the publisher.
    yeah..

    I know..
    which is exactly why I think something is up. They also did Long Way Home. 
    Now I know they are not a 'big publisher bla bla bla' but the method doesnt have to follow the exact same path described above. In fact, all it really takes is a fat check to a Marketing Company
    Actually our friend here @MrMelGibson (or my friend at least) just discovered a game and like many here just thought enough to share it so other like minded gamers could discover it and have an enjoyable time with it.
    Sometimes all you see is all there is to see ;) 
    Wait, WHAT? Friggin MEL GIBSON discovered it and you don't think something is going on??! How more obvious can it get, the writing's on the wall man, the writing's on the wall...

  • Mu Legend - Launch Day Impressions - MMORPG.com

    Considering the original MU was released in 2003, MU Legend feels a bit late to the party.

    I think it still looks good but i might not even bother with it for one simple reason... point and click. It drives me nuts when ARPG devs still refuse to add either WASD or gamepad support to those games in 2017 almost 2018.

    Even 4 directional isometric games on super nintendo played well on a gamepad and these "modern" people still think that limiting an ARPG game to point and click has some kind of benefit. It is a big con.
    Modern? Diablo 1 had it and that game basically started the whole genre. WASD controls in hack'n slash games are actually 'modern', not the other way around. 

    I don't see any benefits by using WASD, at all. I also don't see a downside tbh, just a simple matter of preference.

    This game is proof of the sign of the times,cheaper less aggressive game builds.I played Runes of Magic and actually enjoyed it,yes a sort of Wow clone but did more than Wow and used the sub class system.

    Dragon's Prophet i did not like but i could see they went for an idea and the game was still an aggressive build.



    Runewalker does at least try to put several ideas in their games,i just don't like the cheaper platform/Diabloesque type game that is Embers.If it was a better open world concept with free look i would likely play it.



    However,i would say it is much better than Diablo given the same platform as Diablo really doesn't do anything besides waste your time until you get that perfect build then it is another brainless waste of time,at least Embers is building a rpg.



    So although Rune copies Blizzard a lot,they are 2/2 in my books as i would rather play Runes than Wow and this than Diablo.

    Piece of advice for you my dear Lahnmir, do yourself a favor and do not bring yourself into same level as this old fart does.
    I know, just every now and then he gets to me. Better to let it go I guess.
